b) Construction of a new area to host the “New Stage” with improved operational and functional facilities and expansion of the existing Central Stage.
c) Utilization of the adjacent built building in order to improve the existing parking spaces at the underground floors and to construct new office and support spaces for the theatre.Education and culture are the backbone of any advanced society.

Education, culture and sustainability, the SNFCC’s three main elements, are essential requirements in enhancing the potential of the city and its people and placing them within a twenty first century global context.
